You probably didn’t realize that there was a Guinness World Record for “most compact stroller.” But, then again, you also had no idea there was one for “the most toilet seats broken by one’s head.” (It was 46). Of course, the stroller thing is more useful than the toilet seat thing (unless you hate toilet seats), because if there’s one thing you don’t need more of is baby crap to lug around.
Goodbaby International invented a stroller that is to baby carrying what Peter Dinklage is to acting: Small but formidable. While your average umbrella stroller is about as easy to fold as sheet metal origami, they devised one that not only does it in 2 quick moves — it fits into a backpack. The Pockit breaks down to a 11.8″ x 7″ x 13.8″ square that weighs 9.5 pounds, or about the size of a personal pan pizza — that is loaded with 8 pounds of toppings. And while you might think durability would be lost in the design, it can actually carry 55 pounds of kid and 11 pounds of supplies in the bottom basket.
This is just what you need if you already have that tank-like jogging stroller parked in the garage Plus, think about how badass you’re going to look the next time you’re traveling with the kid. Oh, what’s that exhausted flight attendant side-eyeing this stroller, you’re going to have to gate check it? You’re about to get owned!
